The capital L in arriverderLa

You’ve probably noticed the capital L in arrivederLa. It’s not a typo. It’s actually a pronoun that corresponds to the formal form of you.

You’ll learn more about pronouns later. For now, keep in mind that there are several different ways of saying you in Italian, depending on whether you’re being polite or familiar, and whether you’re speaking to one person or more.

The word arrivederLa literally means something like “until I see you again,” and the -La means that the you is a polite form.

The -ci in arrivederci is also a pronoun, but it means us or each other. So, arrivederci literally means something like “until we see each other again.”
